Starting today, April 25, 2013, this year’s annual set of five America the Beautiful uncirculated quarters is available from the United States Mint.
Officially dubbed the 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin Set™, this product for collectors is priced at $12.95.
This is the fourth year that the uncirculated sets have been available. The United States Mint is producing a total of 56 quarters in the America the Beautiful series. Each one features a reverse side that celebrates a national park or site from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. Territories. The program will continue until 2021, debuting five new designs every year.
America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Sets have ten 25-cent pieces with five minted in Philadelphia and the other five struck in Denver. This year’s quarters honor and depict:
- White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire,
- Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial in Ohio,
- Great Basin National Park in Nevada,
- Fort McHenry Memorial and Historic Shrine in Maryland, and
- Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota
Each quarter is marked on its obverse side with P or D to note its mint of origin. The coins are displayed in a folder with descriptions of each honored site, coin specifications and a Certificate of Authenticity.
2013 America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Sets are available through the United States Mint’s website, on this product page, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
This set does not have any mintage of household limits as collector demand will determine production quantities. Future sets and related products are also available by subscription via the United States Mint Online Subscription Program found at www.usmint.gov/catalog.
